iDixit Needs Players

4 Jul

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to play the party game Dixit you know how great it is. If you haven’t it’s kind of like Apples to Apples only a lot more abstract and imaginative. 

Now there is an app available to play the game online with people all over the world with a wifi connection. It’s called iDixit (note the “i” in front of the name). And the coolest part is the storytellers record their stories in their own voices so you can hear the different accents when you play with people from other countries. 

But this game does not have a lot of players. I log in sometimes and wait for a long time only to connect with one other player. The minimum is three. So far I’ve only had the chance to play one full three-person game. But the ideal number of players would be 5 or 6.

So I’m plugging this game because it is available for free until the end of the month. Download it. Every now and again login and see if there’s a game to join. I think you’ll dig it.

    don’t suppose you’d tell us your id so we can play with you.

    I found it, downloaded on my iphone, did the tutorial. but can’t figure out how to join a game. i don’t understand the passwords to join a game or how I would communicate that to strangers. :( too bad, looks neat.

    Found it. I was searching for a PC free download, downloaded the version on my iPod and THEN figured out that was what you meant because the have the option for online play. Got it!

    I just downloaded the app, looks fun!! Buuuut…. I got to a point where there were four of us waiting to play. Why couldn’t we? Do you *have* to have 6??

  11. nevergirl July 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm #

    Well now I am thoroughly pumped to play, but finding no players online as well.. sincerely hope the user base gets bigger soon!

  12. chitheatergirl July 4, 2011 at 8:14 pm #

    I love the regular version of that game! If only I had something to play iDixit.

  13. Donna Siano July 4, 2011 at 8:21 pm #

    Thanks I’ll give it a try. Hope I get a chance to play you. Thanks again Donna

  14. nevergirl July 4, 2011 at 9:31 pm #

    Played my first game! Such fun!! I’m much better at guessing than storytelling though.. :)

    Man, oh_pook, if you’re still on here, have to tell you I love your sense of humor! Your ‘sorry bout them apples’ card had me laughing out loud.

  15. oh_pook July 4, 2011 at 9:32 pm #

    that was fun! thanks!

  16. Victoria Eden Keen July 4, 2011 at 10:00 pm #

  21. Skookum July 5, 2011 at 8:51 am #

    Here’s the Link to the app in the US iTunes store. It might work for other countries.

  22. John July 5, 2011 at 11:01 am #

    i found this review for the game

    http://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/3015/ios-review-idixit

    says only available with ipad 2x, ipod touch, iphone.

    and, i went 0 for 3.
    this article is from june 15 and says there were issues with the app at launch…3 weeks later, am guessing it’s resolved.
    :)

  23. casinoskunk July 5, 2011 at 4:48 pm #

    I’ll give it a shot.

  24. Gia July 5, 2011 at 8:59 pm #

    I tried to add it but I only have an iPhone 3G and this app is not compatible with my phone. :( Also, it’s only free until July 31 it says.

  25. Anke July 6, 2011 at 12:53 am #

    Downloaded and played the tutorial. Sounds like fun indeed. Now I too am waiting for other players.

  26. Christina July 6, 2011 at 6:14 am #

    Fun :) but your right never anyone on to play :(

  27. Jivejane July 6, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    I’ve had an opportunity to play a few times (though not yet an entire game). Severe lack of people. Too bad, it’s fun!
    Couple of issues I’ve seen-when someone bails that is playing, it ruins the game for everyone else. Wish those players could just drop & the game continue. Frustrating.
    Will keep pursuing in hopes that word spreads, though!

    • Jorge Garcia July 9, 2011 at 8:08 am #

      Totally. Or their wifi cuts out and the the game ends up freezing. I’ve only made it to the end once or twice.

  28. Ang July 7, 2011 at 3:28 am #

    Every time I peek in on your blog and see the title of this one I think “iDixit needs prayers” and wonder for a split second “what’s wrong with iDixit and why does it need my prayers?” :D

  29. Todd July 7, 2011 at 5:36 am #

    Looks fun, not crazy about the recording your voice part, wish you could type your “story” in.

  30. Idlenerd July 7, 2011 at 6:01 am #

    I want to play, but it’s not for Android, is it…:'(

  31. Jeff July 7, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    Alas, another Blackberry user left out in the cold.

  32. Jake July 7, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

    Sounds like fun, but it doesn’t look like there’s a version for Android.

    • Coll July 7, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

      Exactly what I found

  33. Coll July 7, 2011 at 7:03 pm #

    I tried to find the download for my droid, it doesn’t exist. Sorry, this sounds like it would have been fun.

  34. Corey July 8, 2011 at 5:49 am #

    The tutorial looks fun. Hopefully enough people will download the game for players to actually show up. Thanks for sharing Jorge.

  35. Katherine July 8, 2011 at 5:25 pm #

    I’d never heard of this game! I don’t have any of the compatible gadgets so I got the board game. It’s awesome!

  36. Jules July 9, 2011 at 6:35 am #

    I think I’ll look into it. Finding the time to play is another thing altogether, however. Still, it sounds like fun! Just how awesome would it be to play you, Jorge!!!!

  37. Jess July 9, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    If they add it to android!

  38. Tami A July 9, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    Well, you got me hooked when you posted about PvZ, so I’ll head over to the App Store later. Thanks guy!

  39. April July 10, 2011 at 7:44 am #

    COMIC CON! I am so excited. Can’t wait to see you there. Would love to get a picture with you!!

  40. Travis July 10, 2011 at 8:47 pm #

    Chillin’ on iDixit… people have popped in and out, haven’t made it to three people yet… join us!!! (travislund)

    • Stacey Barney Launius July 11, 2011 at 8:23 pm #

      Travis – I played against you last night (stacey1045) only full game I’ve been able to play. Find me on Facebook, Let me know when you’re on. Hopefully we can get enough players.

  41. jimmyrhythm July 11, 2011 at 7:23 am #

    Downloaded, will be trying it out shortly. Thanks for the tip, Jorge!

  42. Jessica DeWeese July 11, 2011 at 12:09 pm #

    I downloaded it, did the tutorial, and it looks really fun, but I haven’t been able to play. There’s never any games, I’ve left it open for hours with no luck.

  43. Anna July 14, 2011 at 11:53 am #

    We love this game. It’s such a great imagination builder for our kids. It doesn’t hurt that the artwork on the cards is fantastic. I’ll go check out the app now!

  44. Cristie July 18, 2011 at 9:05 am #

    Love this game and have only had luch with one finished game. There were 5 of us so it took a little time but was fantastic to hear the other voices. I’m really hoping more people get on.

  45. Strepsocock August 27, 2011 at 7:20 am #

    It’s still free (despite the 31th july notice) and waiting for players.
    At the moment I’m waiting. Come and play!

  46. Heidi Baird January 21, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

    Just downloaded the game. LOVE the idea but have yet to play a game b/c lack of players. It is still free, so please everyone download it!

  47. Chilwin February 2, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    anyone like to play now?? :D

    • Gus January 1, 2013 at 3:05 pm #

      Happy new year!!
